Sedona AZ (March 12, 2018) – The city of Sedona is seeking to fill one position on the Planning and Zoning Commission following the resignation of one member. Because there are fewer than six months remaining in the member’s term, the term of service for this vacancy will end October 31, 2021, or until a successor is appointed.
The Planning and Zoning Commission is a voluntary body of seven citizens appointed by the Sedona City Council whose duties include making recommendations to the city council on Community Plan updates, Land Development Code amendments, property zone changes, and subdivision applications. In addition, the commission makes the final decision on conditional use permits and development review applications.
“The commission plays a critical role in the city’s planning process as it serves as the city council’s advisor on land use, growth, and development issues. We value our volunteers because they provide support, expertise, time, experience, and energy assisting with city functions,” says Audree Juhlin, community development director.
The Planning and Zoning Commission is one of three city commissions and boards required by the state of Arizona. Applicants must be current residents living within the Sedona city limits and should have interest, experience or knowledge in land use or related fields such as architecture, construction, landscaping and planning.
Applications for the Planning and Zoning Commission are available at the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall, located at 102 Roadrunner Dr. or by calling (928) 282-3113. The deadline to submit applications is March 29 at 5 p.m. Completed applications should be returned to the City Clerk’s Office.
